The introduction of artificial light in our environment has dramatically affected nocturnal animals activity – giving advantages to some predators and removing protection for their prey. The reproduction of certain species is also affected.  INFORMATION SOURCE

The inappropriate use of artificial light at night is an environmental pollutant that harms our planet and robs us of the opportunity to experience the wonder of a natural night sky.

“The Silver River” or “River of Heaven” is the Chinese name for what is known in the West as the “Milky Way“, the galaxy of the solar system. In Chinese tradition, the Silver River bathed heaven and earth in constant light and connected both realms, allowing earthly and celestial creatures to meet.
